Description

Protégé is a free, open source ontology editor and knowledge-base framework.

The Protégé platform supports two main ways of modeling ontologies via the Protégé-Frames and Protégé-OWL editors. Protégé ontologies can be exported into a variety of formats including RDF, RDFS, OWL, and XML Schema. (more)

Protégé is based on Java, is extensible, and provides a plug-and-play environment that makes it a flexible base for rapid prototyping and application development. Examples are a visual editor for OWL (called OWLViz), storage back-ends to Jena and Sesame, as well as an OWL-S plugin, which provides some specialized capabilities for editing OWL-S descriptions of Web services.
